I Heart the Union
The true history of the United States is a history of labor. The history of labor is the story of very ordinary men and women doing very extraordinary things. It must be said and said over and over again, that the fundamental purpose of labor unions is the struggle to be equitably paid in proportion to the work they do, to be treated with respect and dignity, for a safer workplace, and to the idea that their hard work will provide a better future for our children. The gains we have won have not been easy. Throughout this nation's history, powerful and immense forces have used their vast wealth and influence to suppress and subvert the working class and their attempts to bring about a more just workplace and a more just society.
On this Valentine's Day, I shall, of course, express my love for my wife and two children, and I will also express my love for all the heroes of the Labor Movement.
--CAPT State President Eric Soto
